Captivate.fm says the its new Guest Booking & Interview Management System allows independent audio creators to book and manage their guest interviews from one central location that’s connected to their podcast host.
In addition to allowing guests to proactively book shows, hosts can automatically capture all of the relevant guest data for use across their podcast’s workflow, including in the measurement of download uplift based on specific guests and in the automation of episode show notes.
Captivate CEO Mark Asquith said, “Since I started podcasting in 2011 I’ve been using calendar-booking links for my guests that were provided by third parties. That works, but it’s not as effective as it should be for the serious modern podcaster; there is no simple link to the other pieces of my workflow which means that I can’t, for example, pass my guest’s bio and social links automatically to my episode show notes, nor could I easily overlay the results of any given guest’s audience onto my own download numbers.
Captivate has made that easy for the busy creator and in addition to saving podcasters huge amounts of time, it also reduces the cost of podcasting by removing one extra paid service from the podcasting stack.”
Asquith says the booking platform is now integrated with remote recording platform, SquadCast and the Captivate team is due to integrate the service with the Podcasting 2.0 initiative and Podchaser in its next release.
